my 96 se-r went into the shop last friday. my mechanic told me that there is no compression on the first cylinder and one of the valves has dropped. he said there might be more to it once he gets into the engine. i have two options, rebuild whatever needs to be rebuilt, or purchase a used engine. my income is somewhat limited, so the sr20det engine is probably out of the question. any advise or comments would be appreciated.

thanks

How bad is your engine? Any idea how low your 1st cylinder compression is? If one of the cylinder is shot, it's probablly cheaper to drop a new engine than repairing it. If DET is too much for you, JDM spec SR20DE (non turbo) is the another option. Place called "K Watanabe" sells them for real cheap.
